Oakley (Japanese リオン Lions) is one of the main antagonists from Pokémon Heroes. She is the partner and younger sister of Annie.

Although the younger sister, Oakley appears to be the brains behind the operation. Annie may be more suave, but Oakley is the mastermind of the plan. Unlike Annie, Oakley has a lust for power - Oakley is quick to use the DMA, and once at its helm, her desire for power takes over her mind (as is implied to be a side-effect of the DMA) - in the dub, she says, "I can control the whole world from in here!"; in the original, "Now this city is mine!" (もうこの町はあたしのもののよ!).

She only uses it briefly, but Oakley is quick to learn how to use the DMA. In that time, she floods Alto Mare, almost drowns Ash, resurrects Kabutops and Aerodactyl Fossils, among other things. Adept as she may be at using it, however, she does not know where to stop, and that eventually proved to be her downfall.

History

Annie and Oakley's calling card

Not much is known about her nor her sister before Pokémon Heroes, but their reputation precedes them; James instantly recognizes them.

In the dub, they were assigned a mission by Giovanni, implying Team Rocket membership, but this is not present in the original.

Abilities

Oakley is excellent at balance and athletics, and she has no trouble making huge leaps and cartwheels while fighting Latios and Latias. She can keep perfect balance on a beam which Jessie, James and Meowth have trouble with. She also has some rather advanced technology at hand - she has glasses which can identify Latias when disguised and can see Latias and Latios when invisible, and they capture Latios using what appears to be a net of energy.

Pokémon

On hand

Temporary

Oakley's Aerodactyl
Aerodactyl
Oakley used ancient DNA to resurrect a Kabutops and an Aerodactyl to chase after Ash and Latias. In the English dub, they were once used by an evil Pokémon Trainer to torment the civilians of Alto Mare, but were drowned when a Latios brought water to the city. They have blank, yellow-tinted eyes with no pupils and are lined with a thick black outline.

Aerodactyl's only known move is Hyper Beam.

Debut Pokémon Heroes
Oakley's Kabutops
Kabutops
Oakley used ancient DNA to resurrect a Kabutops and an Aerodactyl to chase after Ash and Latias. In the English dub, they were once used by an evil Pokémon Trainer to torment the civilians of Alto Mare, but were drowned when a Latios brought water to the city. They have blank, yellow-tinted eyes with no pupils and are lined with a thick black outline.

Kabutops's only known move is Slash.

Future

At the very end of Pokémon Heroes, Annie climbed into the DMA to join Oakley and ended up getting stuck inside it. They were rescued by police, and ended up in a heavily-guarded prison. The last scene of the two of them is in said prison, where they are looking at a picture book about the events of the second movie. Presumably, both are still behind bars.
